God Understands

Last week as I was blog hopping I came across this weeks challenge over at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.  The challenge is to create a card or project that depicts the sharp contrast of black and white or ivory. I chose to do black and ivory with this gorgeous new paper I got from K&Company.  I also fell in love with the stamp set the design team used and ordered it to play with.  I would still like to win it. I have lots of uses for a second set!!  It is from Layers of Color

I used some ivory lace and then sewed some sheer ivory over top of that.   I used the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Two for the sentiment.

I used my sewing machine for two steps with this card. Both around the designer paper as well as to gather the sheer ribbon over the lace.  I used Tim Holtz distress ink in Walnut stain to edge the ribbon tag.  The challenge was black and white so I kept it that way for the front of the card but added a little pop of color to the inside with Spellbinders butterfly.  The ivory paper was cut out with a Martha Stewart around the edge punch.

Thanks as always for stopping by, I love company!!

Now to add some challenges.

Oh my goodness this is beautiful!!! I love the papers you used! I have drooled over that pad at M's but so far have resisted the urge. You used one of my favorite sentiments from that set too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Stampin Sisters in Christ!

This is so elegant! It is a very pretty stamp and I am about as nuts about K&Company papers are you are about MME!! Your stitching is marvelous and I really like how you layered the sheer over the crocheted ribbon : )
